One of the most popular pastimes in Second Life is caring for, feeding and breeding virtual animals. Over the years these animals have improved and developed and a whole community of Second Life breeders and traders has emerged.
KittyCatS! ™ are highly interactive cats that can be petted and cuddled. They will follow you and play with you. There are lots of breeds and sizes, including teacup, toy, petite, normal and MegaPuss. There are also special collection cats that will breed one unique baby. It is compelling and addictive and fascinating. http://kittycats.biz.
What is fascinating is the way in which these cats become real. When they are born an imprinting occurs and this sets the scene for reality to step in.
They become attached. They follow you and talk in local chat. They need feeding or they get sick, they sleep a lot. You give them affection, breed them and end up with baby cats. Their lineage is recorded. They develop a personality.
Great fun you should try it!

Our Kitty Cats have become a business! Yes we love our bundle of pixels
and we are eager to share. To this end we have set up a shop in The Junkyard to sell kittys. They are so much fun to have an animated critter running around. You can set their roaming distance and various animations. You can also set them to follow you and just like a real cat they will pause then amble after you. They have animations of course; cleaning their whiskers, scratching, rolling over, jumping and yes they even talk. Storm has started a blog that chronicles our Not Another Kitten experience!

Put two good-looking cats in one room together and they get ………..frisky! Your cats will be adult when they are 7 days old and to breed they need to have; 25% Energy, 75% Happiness, 100% Love, (we would all like that!) and not more than 25% hungry.
The cats need to be in range of each other and this is the hard bit, your cats need to be awake to get a kitten – (wake up you little monsters).
The new kitten appears ready packed in a box and you have a tense fifteen minutes waiting for the box to open. You can save your boxes for later if you want.
Register with KittyCats.biz and you can see all your cats on a pedigree chart. If two cats have some interesting traits you can pair them together as partners and try for a “wunderkind”.
Your Kitty has various characteristics, traits and some of these will be dominant. Fur, ears, colouration, whiskers, eyes can all be bred for. Each kitty has a history and going back to the grandfather / mother you can see what traits might appear. Genetics for our kittys is somewhat hit and miss however our experience is that you can produce some very cute and interesting cats. The “boring” ones can be left in their boxes in your inventory. When you get your kitty you can register with KittyCats.biz and see your cats pedigree.
I don’t know what you think of all this but I will say this: The experience of being an avatar in second life becomes very real. It is not so far fetched to extend this reality to other objects in the world. Where these objects look like cute kitty cats that move and act like real cats, can be petted and show response to this petting; have to be fed; can get sick then they become very real. If we have a cat in real life we find they have personalities. Likewise we can give our secondlife pets a personality. This all goes to make the whole experience very real.
